It's not enough to get a general feeling when collecting user feedback. You want to know the details, especially since you're getting them fresh and honest, while they were using your product. 😉

You can collect free-form text responses from your users either directly, using the Input or Dropdown Microsurvey types, or as a follow-up to a Chameleon Microsurvey step. For example, after a user responds to an NPS Microsurvey, you can request additional written feedback.
